Why Northwestern?


Growing up in Alva, being a ‘Ranger’ has always been an aspiration of mine. I was reminded from a very young age that it wasn’t “if you go to college,” it was “when you go to college.” From riding on floats in the Northwestern Homecoming parade to attending football games to cheer on our Rangers, Northwestern has always been a very big part of my life. A beautiful campus, friendly staff, and a variety of majors are just a few of the appealing aspects of Northwestern, in addition to phenomenal community support.


I know that I will obtain a quality education that will prepare me for future endeavors. I plan to major in psychology with minors in business and creative writing. Financially, Northwestern offers such generous aid that is almost impossible to pass up. Being from Alva, I have attended countless camps, competitions, and functions at Northwestern all my life, so it already feels like home. I hope to bring even more success and pride to this community.
